Soccer

Doug Abercrombie has 25 years of coaching success in Burnaby.
He coached an Edmonds under-14 girls team to a national championship in 1982 and has five Canadian College titles in seven years as head coach with the Capilano College women's team. He has also coached at the Western Canada Games, at Simon Fraser University, with the B.C. Select u-15 program and with the Vancouver 86'ers women's team in 2000.

Track & Field

Ken Taylor is probably the most successful high school track and field coach in B.C. history. In his 33-years at Burnaby Central, Taylor won 15 provincial banners, was nine times a runner-up and three times placed third.

A Burnaby product and a star sprinter at Burnaby South, Taylor was named coach of the year in 1988. Four of Taylor's athletes from Central have competed in the Olympic Games, most notably Dave Steen, who won a bronze medal in the decathlon in 1988.
